Welcome to the wiki!
This utility library shares all the common code needs for various plugins, and having them in one library heavily reduces the amount of duplicated code. The featured utilities are varied, and whenever something is missing in Spigot, it is added in BKCommonLib. This is one of the reasons why it has become this large: there are simply a lot of things Spigot doesn't (want to) offer.
BKCommonLib has versioning on a per-plugin basis, so when a certain plugin needs version 2, and version 1 is installed, the server owner is automatically notified and the plugin is not enabled. This prevents the common mishaps with outdated BKCommonLib versions. If you develop a plugin that uses BKCommonLib, make sure you depend on the earliest version that still offers the features you need. This makes sure your plugin remains functional on older Spigot builds.
Other than utilities and services, this library offers a wide variety of reflection and user-friendly ways of accessing net.minecraft.server. If your plugin requires the use of the internals, but you do not want to risk changing field and method names, you can depend on BKCommonLib to provide them for you. This allows you to remain compatible between CraftBukkit versions automatically, and reduces silent failure hazards.
This plugin looks for suitable Minecarts and links them together if possible. When two Minecarts are being "linked", the Minecarts will act as one single moving train.
Once carts are successfully linked, an effect is played and their velocity is shared in combination with an individual factor for each Minecart, which is used to remain a steady gap between carts. This gap is adjustable, the force at which this happens as well.
End result: a train! You can move it, make a roller-coaster out of it, split it in half, watch trains collide, whatever you want to do with trains. :)
This plugin features everything related to worlds.
Maplands is a work-in-progress project delivering world map rendering to Minecraft maps. Display the world in an isometric view, link maps together and create a huge overview of your server, and much more is anticipated!
